FANTASIES
FROM TELEMANN TO TESSA LARK

For her debut recital album on First Hand Records, violinist Tessa Lark plays solo Telemann and her own Appalachian Fantasy and is joined by pianist Amy Yang on a CD devoted to the Fantasy over 300 years.  Three of Telemann’s Fantasies are interspersed by works from the classical, romantic and modern eras – Schubert, Kreisler and Ravel – and there’s a connection (by way of a shared theme) between the Schubert and Tessa’s own Appalachian Fantasy, here receiving its world premiere recording.  This associated film, including an interview with producer Judith Sherman, introduces the recording which was released in September 2019.

BELLE ÉPOQUE
FROM ANNELIEN VAN WAUWE

Taking inspiration from the golden age of the evocatively titled Belle époque, clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe has teamed up with the Orchestra National de Lille and conductor Alexandre Bloch on Pentatone for a CD of rapturous music by Debussy, Pierné and Widor (both orchestrated by Jelle Tassyns), along with the world-premiere recording of Manfred Trojahn’s Rhapsodie pour clarinette et orchestre. The longest work on the disc is Luciano Berio’s exquisite orchestration of Brahms’ late, autumnal masterpiece, his Clarinet Sonata Op 120 No 1.  To accompany the recording, Annelien spent a day in Brussels to film this video amidst the city’s own architectural gems of the Belle époque.
